The danger in such a por- trayal is that "it plays into the stereotype of Hitler as a crazy man and that viewers will say, 'I now understand who he was.' It might be bet- ter to live with some ambi- guity and to admit that we don't really understand Hitler." One of the aspects of Hitler that the film does not exglain - that, indeed, may be beyond explanation - is what triggered his murder- ous hatred of Jews.

During the broadcast, there will be a number of public service announce- ments on tolerance with guidance from the Anti-Defa- mation League.

A comprehensive study guide for high school teachers and students has been devel- oped as a companion piece to the film.

LOS ANGELES (JTA)--Robert Carlyle, of The Full Monty andAngela'sAshes fame, gives a strikin mance in the title role of the CBS miniseries, Rise of Evil. In an interview with JTA from his home in Glasgow, in which he allowed his pronounced Scottish burr - suppressed in the film - to come through, the 42" year old actor discussed the challenges and rewards of hiS role. Q: What were your thoughts when you decided to take the role of Hitler? Carlyle: At first I was frightened because I realized potential dangers and pitfalls. But I decided I wouldn tao a carbon copy of Hitler. I would do my own interpreta" tion, that I could explore him like any other character. Then a window opened up and I wasn't frightened any more. Q: One of your fellow cas,! members, Peter Stormare, said, I can t imagine being Carlyle and having to look at himself as Hitler every day because of all the image that flash before your eyes, all the time." What were your feelings? ! Carlyle: Once shooting began, in my quiet momentS' tried to empty myself of the character on a daily basiS rather than store it up for four months. Also, as Hitlet, didn't look at all like myself. I had the moustache, a falS nose, cheek pieces and more weight as Hitler got Q: What was your working day like when you weir shooting the film in and around Prague? the Carlyle: It took around one-and-a-half hours for makeup and I worked 14-15 hours on an average daY. As we went further along, the days got even Iong e.r; Q: I understand that you were offered the role of HlU " three times before you took this one. Carlyle: Yes, the first time was about three years but it didn't come to anything. Another time was for. film "Max" [in which Hitler was played by Noah Five months before I started the CBS job, I workea~ three months on a BBC television production wn to started with Hitler in the bunker and we flashed bacillit his earlier life. So I had already learned a good deal al Ou the character. Q: I believe the BBC project was cancelled, partly due to strong Jewish protests. . Carlyle: I'm not sure. I heard that there were tun '4 roblems because the Amen tner back p 'can studio par out. I don't know about Jewish protests, but if there any I would understand that. Q: One of the concerns raised when CBS annOUI . the project was that any good actor would try to fina human elements in Hitler and therefore make him r u," sympathetic. Carlyle: It wasn't a question of man traits. I didn't have to find that to get close character. I thought Hitler was very belief of you're-either-for-me-or-against-me. I focus on these things. Q: Were you aware of the objections raised by Jewish spokesmen and organizations in the of the CBS project? Carlyle: Not at all; I didn't know what was goil behind the scenes. But I knew from the I gave as honest a portrayal as I could, it would I didn't want to upset anyone. Q: After you finished shooting, did you go decompression stage?
